Synopsis: From the first days of spring, when paint was laid onto the on-deck circle in the sunshine and the silence of Yankee Stadium, to the numbing ovation that accompanied Derek Jeter s send-off, and everything in between, The Final Season: The Official Retrospective provides the last look at an icon from the inside out with more than one hundred and fifty never-before-published photographs shot exclusively for this book. Yankees photographers chronicled every moment from every angle, thanks to the unprecedented cooperation of the entire Yankees organization. Combined with first-person quotes gathered from the likes of President Barack Obama and former presidents George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter to national celebrities and Yankees greats, the book captures the mystery and magic of the final year in the life of the world s most famous ballpark. For any fan of American sports, The Final Season is as unique as Yankee Stadium itself and essential to any book collection. For Yankees fans, the book captures all the magic, mystery and majesty of the most versatile outdoor venue in the history of the modern world. Around a baseball season that stretched from April to September, Yankee Stadium hosted events of all kinds. From Pope Benedict XVI s emotional Mass celebrated on an altar built over second base, to Military Appreciation Day, Major League Baseball s All-Star Game, the final Old-Timers Day and the final game played in the House That Ruth Built, the Stadium remained true to its history as America s grandest outdoor stage. Fittingly, Yankees legend Bernie Williams was the last player to walk through the center field grass as he shot a music video in the waning days of October. The Final Season represents the last word on Yankee Stadium with a style and substance unique to the award-winning and the New York Times bestselling books produced by Rare Air Books.
